Are we so different? We may not be match fixers but we all have our short cuts. Pornography can be a short cut for sex – it’s not as satisfying, or so I’m told! The lottery is a short cut to riches – if you’re lucky! Beer is a short cut to happiness and a good time. Facebook a short cut for friendship?! But do short cuts satisfy, or ultimately, do we just get lost?
Sometimes seeing the bigger picture causes us to lose track of the moment. Ben’s in the moment, he’s off to school for the first time and he’s not going to let this minor annoyance stop him. Would we be the same? Or would fear of the future freeze us in the present?
